I have just started the pretty massive task of transferring my old vinyl album collection to mp3 via my laptop using the headphone connection on my amp and the microphone socket on the laptop and Audio Cleaning Lab Deluxe 2004 software All seemed to go pretty well but on playback via my laptop the sound is in mono!! Any suggestions on how to get round this?
Don't forget guys, it's a laptop. Most laptops that I know of don't have "line-in" sockets, and the mic socket is mono but it isn't good enough to cope anyway. The way to go is with Chronos suggestion or use a desktop with a good sound card.
pj is right - there's no line-in socket on the laptop so it looks like I'll use my PC which must have somewhere.The only problem is that it's about 10 feet away from the stereo system so it's either an extension lead or a longer RCA cable. Any recommendations as to which is the better option?
OK this is my way. My HiFi system is 26ft away from my computer, so I use good quality cassette tape and record from LP to cassette (quality deterioration is minimal, unless you have Spocks ears). I have a JVC portable radio, cassette player, CD player connected to my computer. Put the cassette in and record from there on to hard disk. I use LP Recorder to record the whole tape as one track and LP Ripper to split back into separate tracks, from click here then use Nero to burn to CD.
